I'm finally getting annoyed enough to try to mess with fvwm2rc. I had it working just the way I wanted, and then during a time I was forced over to debian the package maintainer caused the config files to be replaced wihtout asking. And bit by bit, other things have stopped working.
By poking and reding the partial documentation, I've gotten almost all of it working. What I *can't* get working is the alt-tab to rotatate between windows. As I'm reading the file, these lines (which have been around forever) *should* be doing that: # tough to live wihtout alt-tab and friends Key Tab A M Next [CurrentPage !iconic] focus-and-raise Key Tab A MS Prev [CurrentPage !iconic] focus-and-raise Key F5 A M CirculateUp Key F6 A M CirculateDown but they don't. Also, I was able to add the right-hand button for close by chaning to: # for the title bar buttons: Mouse 0 1 A Menu Window-Ops2 Close Mouse 0 2 A Close Mouse 0 4 A Maximize-Func Mouse 0 6 A Iconify But that doesn't give it a "destroy" Icon. I tried using the old debian lines DestroyDecor default-decor AddToDecor default-decor + HilightColor white steelblue + WindowFont -adobe-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-12-* + ButtonStyle Reset + ButtonStyle 2 Vector 16 20x20@1 30x20@1 50x40@1 70x20@1 80x20@1 80x30@0 60x50@0 80x80@0 70x80@0 50x60@0 30x80@0 20x80@0 20x70@0 40x50@1 20x30@0 20x20@1 + ButtonStyle 4 Vector 5 25x25@1 25x75@1 75x75@0 75x25@0 25x25@1 + ButtonStyle 6 Vector 2 80x76@0 20x76@1 But it chokes on the HilightColor line, and if I comment it out, I still don't get the button labels. I'm perfectly happy keeping th defaults, but right now the "maximize" button destroys . . . Finally, left and right buttons with alt aren't raising/lowering the windows. Shouldn't this section (part of system.fvwmrc) do that? # for other parts of the window/borders/icons: Mouse 1 F A Resize-or-Raise Mouse 1 TS A Move-or-Raise Mouse 1 I A Move-or-Iconify Mouse 2 I A Iconify Mouse 2 FST A Menu Window-Ops2 Nop Mouse 3 TSIF A RaiseLower thanks hawk -- Richard E.
